Climb like Hillary – or Mallory, or Noyce, or Tenzing

Or at least look like them when you're on the streets of Manhattan.

Back in September, 2009, I wrote about fashion designer Nigel Cabourn's new/old designs inspired by some of the great adventurers of yesteryear. Well, he's back at it with more designs.

The only hitch is that outfitting yourself in Cabourn's adventure-inspired gear might cost about as much as an Everest expedition. The Everest Parka, in limited edition, sells for $3,450.

    Very cool jacket but a little out of my price range. I wonder how many would opt to try it out on a 8000m mountain today!

    Yeah, my thoughts, too. Probably looks sporty in London, Manhattan, or Tokyo, though!!
